New Jersey Gay Marriage Bill Scheduled to Fail Thursday
The Jersey gay marriage vote, which had been stalled for weeks, is now scheduled to be held in the state senate on Thursday. There was thought to be a bushel of bills ahead of it, and it had previously been pulled from the state senate agenda for fear of failure, but someone must have done a quick cost-benefit analysis, or owed someone else a favor.
The state senate president Dick Codey's remarks are not encouraging: "We're gonna post the bill and see what happens."
If the bill fails before Chris Christie -- who has pledged to veto it -- comes in as governor on the 19th, some supporters plan to take the issue to the state supreme court.
